About this wine
First produced in 2013, this is the top-shelf wine from Boroli made with fruit from Castiglione Falletto. The Boroli 2016 Barolo Brunella opens to a pretty garnet color and a soft, mid-weight approach. Compared to the other new releases in this portfolio, the Brunella offers a more delicate and fragile elegance without the heavier oak signature that we saw in the other Barolo. The bouquet opens slowly to reveal wild rose, cherry, blood orange and ferrous earth. The fruit is presented with focus and precision, and after a little while in the glass, the bouquet throws out some light toast and spice. This is a nicely balanced Barolo.
Cherries and berries with hints of cedar and dried flowers follow through to a medium body, round tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold.
